We have been there a number of times over the years. It is a little bit of an 'old cliche' Australian/Asian restaurant, but we have have always had a good meal there and the price is pretty reasonable, considering what you could expect to pay around the corner on the Esplanade. I know that it is not "authentic" Thai, but what australian asian is. We have been to Thailand and love their food, but we have always been happy with what we get at Cafe Thailand.

The beef tasted like rubber and the spring rolls were horrid. However the pad Thai and curry puffs were very good and tasty. Very inconsistent food. Staff ok. Likely would not return when in cairns.

Visited this restaurant with family.
Some food very good other choices very average.

Don't try the chicken spring rolls as there is no chicken in them. Asked waiter if these were in fact the chicken spring rolls and he said yes but he couldn't find any chicken in them when asked.

Curry puffs very good. Satays very good.

Massaman beef very tough.

Had dinner at Cafe Thailand last night. Have eaten there a number of times, however not in the last 18 months. The experience has always been pleasant, but last night was average in every way. Service very slow. Food was bland. We had the Satay Chicken, chicken was dry and over cooked and the satay sauce was basically just blended peanuts. Massaman Beef appeared to be boil beef placed in the sauce just before serving. Chicken in garlic and chilli sauce had a very strong garlic taste only. On the plus side, vegetables were fresh and nicely cooked. Experience was disappointing.
